Report back : We had a marvellous discussion about pumps on wednesday evening. Highly enjoyable and informative, even our pump patient learnt something.
JOIn us today : On wednesday night 530 pm in Hilton Pietermaritzburg we will be holding an informal hour discussion about pumps -insulin pump therapy. What is pump therapy ? Who “qualifies”? What is the benefit. Is it for everyone who injects insulin?

These are all things we got over like last century. I read a great article about NOT vaccinating your children – the article is tongue in cheek suggesting we go back a century and have 11 kids hoping that 3 will survive and similar suggestions.
Many years ago -like more than 100 or more (?1000) kings used to build walls to protect themselves from “baddies”!
WE are in 2017 people, get with the programme please dear my goodness gracious me!!
WE have progressed, we are an international community, we are not able to build walls for protection ? We are well able to protect ourselves from ugly diseases with vaccines developed by science.
Fake news people, absolute crap on the internet people. Get your mind into 2017 as well as into your body. You are a soul you live in a body you have a mind. Get a grip is what I mean. The world has turned upside down and it needs to be turned right side up.
There are various teams around the world – dedicated scientists and enthusiastic people working on all aspects of diabetes – trying to find prevention, cure, treatments – better, onwards and upwards. The diabetic scientific community at large strive for better quality of life.
There are also many snake juice paddlers as there are fake news folk. Do not be duped or sucked into some scam.
It’s a pity that in the light of such a huge and devastating epidemic there would be folk peddling snake juice and basically lying to a vulnerable subset of people. But that is life and ours the task to engage the brain and always question.
New treatments, closed loop technology and cures are on the horizon and I salute the many people working around the clock to accomplish that. Please the internet if FULL of rubbish – surf wisely.
Where are we at in 2017. Have we learnt anything from our existence up to now?
What is life? What is quality of life? Who are humans? What is power?
From the year dot – and who really knows when exactly that was, humans have lived on earth and by definition had to co-exist. We have grouped ourselves into various different groupings. We have fought wars. We have progressed in many ways and regressed in others.
There are places on earth where justice exists and there are places where it does not. Most of us would prefer to live/be born where there is an inkling of justice and freedom?
So many people were convinced that Trump would not actually become president. They laughed scoffed and said it would never ever happen. It did.
Now here we are in 2017 in a fairly regressed place – I believe. Where one person signs into being orders that blanketly prevent movement of “free” people categorising them by a set of rules. Abortion is bad – terrible and to be frowned upon but living people who are living in a war-torn unjust places are even worse, cursed and must remain that way with no redemption? And America – the once – free world is now becoming an insular, inward focused country with walls around it. No boogy men or women allowed in. Are you really that narrow minded ? Mr Trump? The message preached sounds really quite extraordinary, quite two-faced, quite astonishing.
As the CNN reporter put it – americans risk of being killed in america by any one of these nations so called terrorists is a very very small number with the total counted up to now being zero.
However countries that provide profit to Mr Trump (whose citizens may be more dangerous) seem to be fine for the moment (don’t hold your breath though).
I wonder where this is all headed. In about 2 weeks a brand new landscape opens up across America – no longer the free world. No longer an american dream. No longer.
And yet there is support against Trump worldwide ?
I really wish that the way I see things is perhaps not the way they are – can someone point out a positive here? Is Trump actually doing a good thing? A thing I can not see?
